Religious fanatism

Thousands of Sudanese, many armed with clubs and knives, rallied Friday in a central square and demanded the execution of a British teacher convicted of insulting Islam for allowing her students to name a teddy bear “Muhammad.” […] The protesters streamed out of mosques after Friday sermons, as pickup trucks with loudspeakers blared messages against Gibbons… […] “Shame, shame on the U.K.,” protesters chanted.

That’s what you get from unintelligent people who are pushed by their religious leaders to go left or right. I mean, think about it. The “official” punishment for this “crime” is 40 lashes. Regardless if this is a fair punishment or not, these guys stormed out of their mosques and demanded execution instead. This just shows people who don’t know what they are doing and are easily convinced by their leaders. They show no personal character.

And no, I have nothing against Muslims. I have everything against religious fanatics though, regardless of religion.

Talk to them and they will be very intelligent in answering your questions so I wouldn’t call them ‘unintelligent’, but rather brainwashed, cruel, savage. These guys are extremely dangerous and their religious leaders (the ones that spread extremist ideas in the mosques) should never be allowed in western countries. It is a sad thing that some of them travel from country to country, even to Belgium, to spread these ideas in mosques subsidised by the local government (as is the case in Belgium).

Brainless people I would say, because one should always question others opinions. I respect their religion and beliefs, but I DO NOT respect any form of extremism.

Nice post.

I as a Muslim is surprised by these people’s reaction, of asking that the teacher be executed, its just ridiculous and dumb to do so.

I say send in the SAS and rescue the teacher, and teach these uneducated moron some proper Islamic teaching plus kick there arse royally.
